The Amfibidiver is the creation of Belgian inventor René
Baldewijns. The Amfibidiver is able to drive on land,
float and maneuver on the water like a boat, and submerge
and navigate like a submarine.
The two seat Amfibidiver was constructed by René and some
interested helpers using backyard engineering and ingenuity.
The Amphibidiver is made up from a variety of assorted
parts, including; the fuel tank of an airplane, two bicycles,
the motors from five electric wheelchairs, the hull of
a sailing boat, seven drink containers, several kilos
of resin, a few garden seats and several miles of electrical
cables. A mixed lot to go with it's mixed abilities.
The Amfibidiver is a 'wet' submarine, meaning the occupants
must wear scuba gear and sit in water, in the Amphibidiver.
The Amfibidiver is a one-off fully working concept, currently
residing in the Land,
Sea and Air museum.
